Devin describes the Retinal Circus as: “a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a ‘circus’ of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music.”

“‘Epicloud’ is huge…Devin Townsend is to music as what Michelangelo was to painting and sculpting.” — ABSOLUTE PUNK.net
“Devin Townsend continues to excel at being one of the noteworthy prolific musicians in metal today with the excellent ‘Epicloud’.” — LAMBGOAT.com
“Devin Townsend’s new album, ‘Epicloud,’ is incredible; it might be Devy’s White Album…It melds a whole lot of different styles into a series of dangerously catchy tunes; a whole lot of the album isn’t metal, but every second of it of is great, and yes, most certainly EPIC.” — METAL SUCKS.net
“…a bombastic and catchy record, filled to the brim with some of the best pop metal you will ever find…’Epicloud’ is without a doubt the strongest collection of songs on any Townsend record to date.” — HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY.com
“Although he’s known world-wide for his heavy riffing, there has always been a lot more than just that going on in his music. Listening to ‘Epicloud’s opening tune ‘True North’ you get classical choruses, power-metal layering, Scandinavian folk and frightfully meaty sludge metal slashing.” — VANCOUVER PROVINCE
